Fluids Engineering Construction
Partially Completes Campus Needs


(Continued from Page 1)

To Horse
ward Kaplan walked up to his
1958 convertible yesterday to
find a horse eating the trunk.
Dismayed, he summoned po-
lice. Police said the horse's
teeth had actually dented the
hard metal.
Ordinarily, the horse is con-
fined to pulling a Junk wagon
around town. It molested Kap-
lan's car during lunch hour.
When police questioned the
owner of the horse, he replied:
"Why question me? I didn't
do anything."
Police left Kaplan, the horse
owner and the horse to resolve
the problem.

building, the one now in use hav-
ing been built 33 years ago.
.The structure will have adequate
electricity and water facilities
necessary for large equipment, he
explained. Several departments, in-
cluding those of aeronautical, civil,
chemical, engineering mechanics,
mechanical, marine, electrical and
nuclear engineering, will share the
new area.
The nuclear engineering section
of the building will include a sub-
critical reactor for teaching pur-
poses, Edmonson explained.
The completed Fluids Engineer-
ing Building will possess "a maxi-
mum degree of flexibility," Ed-
monson added. To keep the struc-
ture usable longer, only one facility
will be given permanent installa-
Plan Second Unit
The legislature has appropriated
$20,000 for planning the second
unit of the structure. According to
present University plans, the entire
structure should be operating by
the school year 1960-61.
Fluids form a basic concept in
all engineering, and its study is
therefore required by all depart-
ments of the college. Thus all
students in the engineering college
will use the Fluids Engineering
Building at one time or another
during their undergraduate years
at the University, he explained.
"The undergraduates will be
taught the applications of basic
sciences to engineering, and the
graduate student will use it to
experiment along new lines," Ed-
monson said.
The present unit now being used
can be utilized either as a two- or
three-story structure due to its
flexible features, he added.
Council Views
Dorm System
Assembly Dormitory Council
appointed a special committee to
investigate the possibility of a
change in the representation and
procedures of women's legislature
at its regular meeting yesterday.
The committee, which will in-
vestigate the present system of
residence hall representation and
make recommendations to the
Council, is composed of Myra
Gaines, '62, Karen Kuhr, '62,
Margaret O'Connor, '62, Barbara
Gilbert, '60, Anita Jacobs, '61 and
Cress Washburn, '62.
Other members of the group are
Ronnie Mae, '62, Mary Sue Black-
burn, '62, Linda Rhea Axelrod,
'59Ed., Carol Bates, '62, Virginia
McBride, '59, Barbara Baril, '60,
and Gloria Brooks, '61.
The Council also appointed
Nancy Gilford, '60, as a special
representative for a joint commit-
tee of the League, Union, Inter-
Fraternity Council, Panhel Asso-
ciation, Interhouse Council and
Assembly Association to arrange
entertainment for the J-Hop in-
The IHC-Assembly sing was
also discussed by the council. All
houses are to turn in their song
titles and the name of the men's
house with whom they are singing
by Friday, according to Barbara
Bank, '59, co-chairman of the
Eliminations for the contest
will be held Dec. 1, she announced.
At the present time 12 houses
have turned in the titles of their
selections and 14 houses have an-
nounced the names of their joint
men's house.
All other houses wishing to en-
ter should turn i the informa-
tion to the Assembly office in the
Student Publications Building.

Jobs 'Call
Over-all demand for engineer-
ing graduates probably will be
somewhat higher next year, Prof.,
John C. Young, head of the Place-
ment Office for the College of En-
gineering, indicated.
In the annual report for 1957-
58, he stated that increased de-
fense requirements will create
more jobs ,and that -commercial
optimism will also help.
The report points out demand
probably will be especially strong
for electronics engineers and sci-
entists, but also will be relatively
high for all branches of engineer-
Substantial Reversal
The 1957-58 period was notable
fpr the first substantial reversal
in the upward trend of engineer-
ing demand which started in 1950,
Prof. Young said.
The decrease began as a result
of defense coptract cancellations
and adjustments during the sum-
mer of 1957 and was furthered by
the developing business recession
during the rest of the year.
Additional reductions resulted
from changes in military service
policy and from completion of
plant expansion projects.
Reduce National Demand
The over-all effect was to-r re-
duce the national demand for en-
gineers about one-third over the
previous year. Virtually all Uni-
versity graduates, however, were
able to find satisfactory employ-
ment before graduation, the re-
port stated.
The smaller decrease in campus
recruiting seems to stem from two
main principles, Prof. Young said:
the continuing competition for
top-level graduates and the gen-
eral acceptance of the belief that
the long-run need for engineers
Will continue to exceed the prob-
able supply.

Lewis Talks
On Religion.
At Meeting
College students are becoming
more interested in religion as an
academic discipline, Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis, said Saturday.
This statement was made at a.
panel discussion of religious acti-
vities in state universities at the
36th annual meeting of the Asso-
ciation of Governing Boards of
State Universities and Allied In-
stitutions, which was held at Pur-
due University.
Lewis said, "Many have object-
ed to teaching religion in the
state university, some on narrow
sectarian grounds and others on
the legalistic 'separation' argu-
ment. He continued saying that,
"Neither objection can be vali-
DeWitt Baldwin, University co-
ordinator of religious affairs said,
"Today the state university which
cares for the physical and mental
health of the student may, wit
equal propriety, concern Itself\
with his religious needs."
"The University cannot afford
to ignore a development that
criss-crosses the campus and lies
so close to the heart of its own
concern. It must walk the thin
line between its constitutional re-
sponsibility and its responsibility
to its students," he added.
Milton McLean, coordinator of
religious affairs at Ohio Univer-
sity noted that, "In the last dec-
ade, the number of student reli-
gious groups has doubled or
tripled." This was given as a re-
sult of the change of religious cli-
mate since World War II.

Lockheed Missile Systems Division is systems manager for such major, long-term projects
as the Navy Polaris IRBM; Ar Force Earth Satellite, Q-5, X-7; Army Kingfisher and
other important research and development programs. The Division was honored at the
first National Missile Industry Conference as "the organization that contributed most
in the past year to the development of the art of missiles and astronautics."
Headquarters for the Division are located at Sunnyvale, California on the San Francisco
Peninsula. Research and Development facilities are in the Stanford Industrial Park in
nearby Palo Alto. Other Division locations are at Van Nuys, Santa Cruz, and Santa
Maria, California; Cape Canaveral, Florida; Alamagordo, New Mexico; and Hawaii.
Together, they provide complete facilities with the latest scientific and technical equip-
ment, including one of the most advanced computing centers in the nation. Employee
benefits are among the best in the industry.
For those who qualify and desire to continue their education, the Graduate Study Pro-
gram enables them to obtain advanced degrees at the University of California at Berkeley,
or Stanford University, while employed in their chosen fields at Lockheed.
